Dry Rocks Shoot #1 Notes

Blog by David Parrish | DRY ROCK SERIES 2022 | 05/05/22


We are working on a little sub-series to rework and rediscover our outside voices. This is the first shoot of the series.

We wanted to play around with stripping away our sets and playing with the organic round shapes and textures of nature. For most of my sets, I was up to about 6 strobes to light a scene. I wanted to break it down as minimally as I could. I used the early morning sky as one giant softbox. I under-exposed the environment/background in camera and then used our Paul C Buff battery-powered Links. Full blast, bare bulbed with a 30degree grid. I acted as the light stand and aimed the light for each shot.

I’m pretty satisfied with the initial results of this project. I have a pretty long list of things I will change, but I have learned a lot. Some changes will include: Creating a rim light source, darkening up the overall environment, and dialing up the storyline a bit. This includes freaking out the posing just a touch.

I’m into this concept so I will probably add this into a repetitive stage so that it can be perfected.
